From Community Board 3’s web site:

NYCDOT will be holding a public meeting for the Bowery-Houston-Bleecker Transportation Study which was initiated in response to community concerns regarding congestion, safety and other quality of life issues. The study which focused on an area bounded by Clinton Street to the east, Mercer Street to the west, 8th and E 4th Streets to the north and Delancey Street to the south documents the various analyses and preliminary recommendations. The goal of the meeting is to receive community input on the improvement measures that are designed to address the traffic issues raised in the past.

The meeting happens Wednesday, November 20 at 6:30 p.m. at University Settlement, 273 Bowery.
